Parents react with outrage to BBC featuring 11-year-old ‘drag kid’ on segment for youth

LONDON, February 21, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) — The British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) has uncritically promoted controversial child “drag kid” performer, 11-year-old Desmond Napoles, via its World Service radio station and caused dismay among listeners.

An episode of “BBC Minute” that aired February 9 was titled “You’re never too young to start doing drag” and featured Napoles in a selection of his adult female-themed outfits and wigs together with his mother Wendy stating that her son’s drag act is a “perfectly natural childhood expression.”
